A recall involving infant products has been issued by the Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada.
The recalled products, a wrist rattle and baby booties, have small pom-poms that may dislodge during play, posing a choke hazard. The knitted yarn toys were sold in a variety of colors.
The recalled items are sold under the name of Monkeez & Friends and are distributed by Midwest-CBK Inc., of Union City, Tenn.
The rattles and booties are manufactured in China and imported by the Midwest-CBK company in Tennessee.
The company is voluntarily recalling the products, citing no injuries have been reported as a direct result of these products. One incident of a pom-pom falling off has been reported.
More than 10,000 wrist rattles and 11,000 booties were marketed in the United States. Of those, approximately 600 rattles and 700 booties were sent to Canada.
The products were sold in various stores and outlets across both countries between June 2009 and March of this year. Rattles were sold for about five dollars each, while the booties were sold for about 13 dollars a pair.
Consumers who have one of these items should return it to the store it was purchased. Another option is to return the wrist rattle or booties to the manufacturer for a full refund.
